‘A Beauty Refined’ Blog Tour and Giveaway

beautyPhoebe Von Bergen is the daughter of a German count with many secrets.  When he brings her to America, they all begin to surface bringing surprises and danger into her life.  Ian Harper finds Phoebe intriguing and wants to get to know her, but the more he learns, the more he realizes that her family story is a lie.  She has no idea how twisted her father’s lies have become.

When Phoebe runs into a woman she recognizes, her family’s deceptions begin to unravel causing unexpected danger.

Tracie Peterson’s “A Beauty Refined” is the second in her Sapphire Brides series.  Her story is intriguing with characters that bring excitement to life.  Her story was fun to read and it so enraptures that it takes little time to get into the plot.  When the plot thickens, it is tempting to rush through to find out how the story ends, but it is quite worth taking the time to read every word.

Even though the ending leaves you begging for more, Peterson does an excellent job cleaning up all the loose ends.  I did get somewhat frustrated with Ian Harper’s character, but in the end, he ultimately takes on his heroic mission with grace.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Little does Phoebe know that her father’s plans—for the sapphires and his daughter—are not what they seem. If you love historical fiction, romance, and adventure, don’t miss Tracie Peterson’s A Beauty Refined. When Phoebe meets Ian, everything changes. Yet the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that her family story is based on a lie—a lie she has no knowledge of. And Ian believes he knows the only path that will lead her to freedom.
